BRYCE SUMA NEWS UPDATE

Bryce have introduced the Bryce Suma Profi XL to their well established range of post drivers. The Profi XL is a derivative of the highly successful Profi models which still remain in production. The Profi XL features revised mast tilt geometry for increased mast tilt angles and added mast support if larger hammers want to be used. Additional reach is also provided on the patented sideshift, backshift and quadshift combination allowing easier access into awkward corners. A mast jack leg is fitted as standard for mast support when at full reach and the mast jack leg is also used to support the post driver when using the new upgraded rockspike system. A new rockspike system has been introduced which features a patented hydraulic spike engagement and rockspike cradle arm with clam shell, floating head and emergency release. The new clam shell design allows any Bryce rockspike, round and square hole punchers to be easily interchanged adding to the machine’s versatility. The new hydraulic engagement reduces operator fatigue and is a major contributor to health and safety. When rockspiking every hole for stakes down a fenceline this new system also offers greatly increased daily output. The new Bryce 180 PRO one man tracked machine replaces the previous HD180 and offers very major advances in every department. Auto power lock slew turret has been introduced to give truly effective use of the standard backshift feature. The new suredrive powered system of the slew turret gives positive mast and hammer slew for weight transfer on any slope, ensuring safety and stability when tracking across undulating land and hill country. Dual controls and the new patented hydraulic spike engagement system also come as part of the standard specification. Wide tracks are an option and go from the standard 320mm wide up to 400mm wide version. Hillside track running gear is also fitted as standard and employs 6 specially developed bottom rollers which ensure positive track retention at all times when tracking across steep inclines. A new option is a hydraulically operated wire net dispenser which will handle up to 500m rolls of stock net.

Jessica Card is a Senior Rural Practice Chartered Surveyor for George F White based in their Duns and Alnwick offices. She specialises in subsidy and grant applications, strategic business management, valuation and the sale and purchase of rural property in both England and Scotland. Andrew Entwistle is a partner with George F White who procures funding for clients from a wide range of sources, including High Street Lenders, Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC) and private equity. Are fixed rate finances the way forward? Since the worldwide crash in 2007/2008, UK interest rates have been at a record low, they were recorded at their lowest last month by a further decrease to 0.25% in the wake of Brexit. I am told by an eminent economist that if the country was running normally the Bank of England’s base rates should be 5.5% on average. What I am finding now is that after nearly eight years of low interest rates, most people are viewing the 0.5% Bank of England base rate as the norm. Money has been cheap, particularly for farmers, over the last few years which has certainly influenced the land market meaning that Brexit has had one useful impact, in that those customers looking for long term fixed finance can benefit from exceptionally low rates. The fixed rate finance market has been likened to a government bond tracker, a lowering of government bond values (such as it was in the wake of Brexit) results in lower fixed rates deals. It is good news to hear from most financial institutions lending to farmers that it is business as usual following Brexit and the appetite for lending is still there. Now some farmers are capitalising on the cheap rates by leveraging out their farming assets over long term 30 year fixed rate deals at under 3% all in and are using the funds to invest in higher yielding non-agricultural property. Fixing gives certainty as to annual payments, but may have disadvantages such as early redemption penalties etc. If you have variable rate finance at the moment it may be wise to consider fixed rate finance. The key questions to ask are what would payments be on your existing arrangement if the Bank of England base rate is 5.5% and are there any loan covenants that give a bank the ability to renegotiate or call in a loan? Of course interest rates may remain low for many years to come or they may jump up significantly. If I knew the answers I would be sailing in a yacht in the Bahamas, however I do think there is merit in hedging against the risk of increased interest rates giving certainty for the future. If and when interest rates rise, the fixed rate market is likely to be much more expensive than it is now. Andrew can be contacted on 0797 751 8156 or andrewentwistle@georgefwhite.co.uk. Alternatively please contact Senior Rural Surveyor Jessica Card at our Duns office on 01361 883488 or Jessicacard@georgefwhite.co.uk. 14

Ian Mackenzie is an arable and dairy farmer from the Canterbury Plain in the South Island of New Zealand. He runs a number of fully irrigated intensive cropping farms, producing grain, vegetable and grass seeds with some stock finishing. The extended Whanau (family) have been giving the Boss and I lessons in modern cosmopolitan on-line living. My nephew, the prodigy, and his fiancé (a very attractive lawyer) kindly invited us to their wedding last weekend. Well I think they did as we only got a message from my sister to check out their website; which once we were past the password and had navigated their face-book page and twitter Mobile Sheep Handling accounts, took us to their wedding page. Here there was a suggestion that if we felt like it, we should gather at Tu Ngutu villa on the Mahurangi Inlet formally dressed to celebrate with them. The day after at Tu Ngutu Why not? It was the middle of harvest, but having been promoted to director of pigs and peripheral enterprises, harvest didn’t seem so important. I did have to google the Mahurangi (somewhere north of Auckland) to know where to go; book airfares and hire car by Air NZ app (easy); join Airbnb to find accommodation vaguely near the venue (only took 3 rejections before they accepted me); bought wedding present on-line (really easy); sort transport to and from the wedding; and then tell the Boss that superhusband had sorted everything and we were good to go. She of course was slightly worried, but contained herself to worrying about what to wear. The website said formal so she should wear a smart dress and I would wear a penguin suit. Things got off to a slightly dodgy start when she gave me a glass of champagne at the airport. I don’t mind drinking at 8am but was a wee bit surprised the Boss was encouraging it; (our forgotten wedding anniversary). We then arrived in Auckland and the rental car had not been Lamb Creep Shelteras did Calving Yoke Gatestrain on anniversary ordered, no major drama. Getting lost navigating through Auckland using google maps put a slight celebrations the traffic congestion. A Bruce Springsteen concert had every red blooded table thumping Kiwi bloke in the country travel into the city at the same time as all the thousands of participants at the annual gay parade: an eclectic mix. Later, (after surprising our Airbnb hosts by being a couple instead of the single I’d apparently booked) while waiting on the street in our wedding finery a maori fella asked if we were part of the busking festival in town. South Island farmers going to weddings are clearly a rare sight in the far north.

I KNEW HE WOULDN’T Wendy writes

You’ve guessed it, he has gone on holiday and the money that could have been spent on me is being blown somewhere in the French Alps. How selfish can you get? I do all the work he has all the fun. Here I am a rapidly diminishing asset that is falling apart at the seams providing a lifestyle for someone who is more interested in himself than those around him. What you can you do when no one listens to your cries of help? Suddenly in a moment of inspiration I realised I could refuse to go anywhere by making one of my two 12 volt batteries unserviceable. It is not an easy thing to do but with a bit of help from an unnamed person I disabled one power source. Smugly I sat Having a Stand Off with Him! there waiting for him to come. For two weeks he paid no attention to me and then a lorry of fertiliser arrived and I had to move. In he jumped turned the isolator to live, switched on the ignition and was very surprised to see no dashboard lights come on. He asked Tony to pull me with a tractor, and as much to my surprise as anybody I fired up and the South Road – Belford engine was running. This was not part of the plan and destroyed my attempt at an all out strike. At least he (01668) 213 433 couldn’t drive me on the road as none of my electrics Suppliers of Quality Assured worked. I heard him ordering a new battery and soon I will be back in service much against my wishes. READY MIXED CONCRETE When he is back from his sojourn in the Alps we have Steven Birdsall (01668) 213 733 Mobile: 07970 112761 some jobs to do. There is a shed at Oakwood Mill, GILBERT BIRDSALL Selkirk, Anne’s shed at Ednam and the rearing shed BUILDING & CIVIL ENGINEERING to move.

A revolutionary, patent pending Grain Drying system will save Hulam Farm £36,000* per year. “I have dealt with Calibrate for a number of years now and this is the second big project I have undertaken; paybacks from the initial project have been 4 years rather than the forecasted 6.5 years. I like these guys, they are very clever, get the job done – could highly recommend them for large scale projects.” Michael Allan Hulam Farm

How it works - drying example: Aerial Plan View Dehumidifier System

The heatpump heats the air. As this is a continuous loop it requires a lot less energy than a conventional drying system.

Blinkbonny Kwik Mix

Concrete the way you want it!

Blinkbonny Quarry is offering a revolutionary way of mixing concrete, instead of the traditional method of delivering ready mixed concrete Blinkbonny Kwik Mix have placed a batching plant on the back of a lorry. Our batching plants can be set on site to produce any spec of concrete required and it can be controlled to stop to the nearest shovel full, eliminating wasted concrete and unfinished jobs. The machines will carry enough raw material for 6 or 8M3 but can leave concrete in quarter M3 amounts so if the job takes 4.75M3 we will take the rest away and you only pay for what you lay, no “part load charge”. We all know how difficult it can be to estimate so here is the answer, no more ordering 4M3 and then having to order another half M3 to finish the job. We also supply all grades of hardcore and crushed rock products at

Talking......... Organic

Simon Bainbridge farms in partnership with his wife Claire and his parents, Ivan and Elisabeth in Northumberland. They run suckler beef and sheep enterprises across 650 ha of mainly SDA and moorland organically. So the egg production unit for our 12,000 organic layers is progressing with speed now. The system is finished apart from a few bits and pieces. Most of the equipment has arrived and final jobs including concrete poured for the generator pad and the ends of the shed are now complete. It has been quite an undertaking with knowledge and skills pulled from across the country. There also appears to be enough electric cabling to go round the earth, twice... that’s probably an exaggeration. We have had a great group of companies pulling together to get this house up and running and with the final furlong in sight I would like to particularly thank James McEwan who has done all the ground works and been working on the shed from start to finish, as well as the team here. A tremendous job. We now just need the hens to arrive fit and healthy and say a massive prayer that AI disappears before we have to let them out! The spring calving cows are due to receive their Rotavec Corona and CoseIcure boluses ready for calving from the 9th April. Before then we also need to muck all the buildings out pre calving. Everything is looking a little soggy with all the rain that fell last week. We were away that week on a family holiday, so what fell as rain here, was fortunately snow in the Alps providing 3 excellent days of fresh powder. I am not quite sure what is more stressful – investing heavily in a new diversification or watching your children go skiing for the first time and literally bomb down the slope past you. It was not necessarily the relaxing break Claire and I were hoping for. 95% of the fat lambs / hoggs have gone and we are now clearing For Sale the buildings of fat cattle which will make life easier as we go into Cosnet Spring. It is certainly going to be a busy one with pullets arriving Pluton first, a raft of new inspections from DEFRA, Freedom Foods, trailer Organic certification body and Lion Code. This will be swiftly Demo & new followed by calving starting and then it’s a race to see whether eggs in stock arrive before lambs. If we make it to June still sane, that will be a result! £10,750 All the time we are looking to adapt our business to make it stronger and spread our risk across the sectors – so we have our next project Clive Houldey earmarked and just need to get started on it. 07703 488277 • 01461 600203

Barry Meeke farms 190 acres (150 owned) in partnership with brother Philip, near Dromara, County Down, Northern Ireland. They manage a mixed farm including pedigree British Friesian cows, breeding replacements, finished cattle and continental crosses being either sold as replacement suckler heifers or as finished stock. As soon as there was a little prospect of a little increase in cash flow as the slurry ban was lifted at the start of February, the rain began to fall and is continuing to do so at approximately 150% of the weekly average. We will just have to be patient and be extra ready for the burst of work whenever it eventually dries up. The only advantage is that we are waiting on a replacement tractor to arrive while the old faithful has moved on after 18 years and 15800 hrs of faithful service whist still being able to do much more work for its new owner. Depreciation, repair costs and replacement tyres on this tractor averaged out approx. £2/hr which is well below average. It would be nice to have all the money which it generated in a pot, but we all know as farmers that never happens. Our monthly milk recording is due next week with the first of the PD results due from that but, in the meantime cows due to be on heat that haven’t been served are showing strong heats while a good percentage of served cows are remaining quiet. If another 12 straws of black and white semen are used, we will use solely beef after that to try and consolidate the heifer calf ages. Routine is key with dairy cows as, even though I wouldn’t be the world’s earliest riser, the cows Power Washing Service are milked then allowed to stand and eat before returning to the cubicles and they seem to enjoy resting for up to 2 hours before DOMESTIC • AGRICULTURAL • INDUSTRIAL fresh feed. If the diet feed is put out no later than 12.30pm it SHEDS - ROOFS - DRIVEWAYS allows adequate time for a rumen fill, a rest and another push up with feed 30 minutes prior to milking. WALLS - DECKING - FENCING Although it hasn’t been tested I am very pleased with the silage All Work Considered quality at the minute as intakes are very high and as cows continue to calve, it may take 2 mixes in the diet feeder to suffice. I will Mobile - 07826 042 491 use silage analysis soon to try to reduce concentrate usage and then hopefully reduce the need for concentrate even further in Home - 01361 882 429 approximately 6 weeks time when I trust that the pastures will be green and hopefully dry.

£40,350 + VAT 105HP Loader Tractor

Following on from our very successful Maxxum campaign in the autumn, Paxton’s have once again taken advantage of a similar offer from Case IH. We have purchased several Farmall 105C tractors which are coming to the end of the current engine regulations recommended by the government. These tractors need to be moved on so that they can be replaced with a new “greener” model. These compact yet powerful tractors are among the last to be produced with a diesel only engine before the tier 4B ad blue version becomes standard. Equipped with a Case IH Stoll LRA Loader this will give excellent all-round performance at an extremely competitive price. Please contact us for more information on this great offer, don’t delay ring now to avoid disappointment.

Talking......Beef

Robert Forster worked as a livestock and business journalist for a range of publications including Agra Europe, Farmers Guardian and Scottish Farmer as well as BBC Radio 4 “Farming Today”. He was founding chief executive of the National Beef Association before stepping back in 2008 to write its weekly Newsletter. He now produces his own Beef Industry Newsletter.

On Our Farm

6th March 2017 I was very amused by Ian Mackenzie’s article this month recounting his limited success in booking travel, hire car and accommodation for his nephew’s wedding near Auckland recently. I smugly thought I don’t make mistakes like that. Until last Wednesday, March 1st, Philly (the Boss like Ian’s!) was away for the morning, I was in the office when unexpectedly an Interflora van arrived with a large bunch of flowers addressed to both of us from our children for our wedding anniversary, the reminder came too late for me to recover lost ground. Early on Sunday morning we set off for a skiing holiday flying to Geneva, as we got onto the A68 heading North Philly asked are you sure we are going from Edinburgh. A quick check on the iPhone and we found ourselves turning round and heading South to Newcastle. We were the last to check in but did catch the right plane. From Geneva I thought I had booked the Ouibus from the airport to St Gervais, in fact I had booked it from the central railway station. Luckily they forgave a dumb farmer from Scotland and we were allowed on. Our first day on the hill we found ourselves stuck at the bottom of a lift that suddenly closed due to high winds. We were stranded from our car on the wrong side of the valley. With the help of vin chaud stops we eventually caught a bus back to the centre. The hens were let out of their houses on February 28th, this is the first time in 12 weeks they have been allowed to be free range. Prior to release we had to do a thorough risk assessment ensuring there was no lying water or spilt feed that would attract wild birds. Stonegate, who buy our eggs, were reticent to give firm advice whether we should keep them housed or let them out. They were keen for us to seek veterinary advice, the vet said he would prefer us to keep them housed. However if we did keep them in, it would be voluntary, we would have to declare that our eggs were from housed hens and Stonegate could (they never said they would) reduce our price from organic to barn which would be a cut of more than 60%. This would not even cover the feed cost so a decision was made that to maintain our free range status we would let the birds out. We have kites with a Happy hens! The range not be dry but at least hawk flying in each range to ward off unwanted feathered visitors. The hens have reacted well to the change, egg mightthey are outside. numbers have been very good, mortality low and feather cover better than previous flocks. Activity in arable fields has been limited to spreading muck, and ploughing up a grass break sown in the autumn. Normally we would have spread the first application of nitrogen by now, but with no frost and a lot of rain there is no way we can travel. Fortunately there is very little yellowing right now although I am sure it will change colour very quickly if we don’t get on soon. I am now a member of two bench marking groups. There are eight of us that were originally in a business Organic oats looking green improvement group, and latterly a focus on figures beef group. We gained so much from the meetings that and healthy when the funding was withdrawn we decided to finance a facilitator ourselves and keep meeting regularly. We compare accounts, ask awkward questions, challenge each other, and discuss how we plan to future-proof the business. The second one is an AHDB sponsored www.scotpen.co.uk arable benchmarking group which is also going to cover whole farm performance. The more you put into the group meetings the more you get out The Kelso Discussion Society had an excellent programme of 4 meetings through the Winter. Attendance has been falling in recent years, it was very encouraging to see the room full on more than one occasion this season. The January meeting was a political debate with our local MP (SNP) and the elected MSP (Conservative), both of these speakers are relatively young, articulate and passionate.

The chairman, Neil Thomson, asked for a show of hands Second-hand Prattley & Scotpen sheep systems for sale from those under 40 in the room.

“We started applying Clearwinner AM-AC MP to our fuel 3 years ago and now use it everytime we have a fresh delivery. We felt that some enhancement was needed to the diesel fuel supplied because our tractors and other associated vehicles were simply not performing to their optimum level. The engines sounded a bit “under par” which we put down to the effect of a general reduction in diesel fuel quality. Since using Clearwinner AM-AC MP we have seen a marked improvement in the overall performance of our equipment and the engines sound a great deal better! We would recommend that all operators of agricultural machinery seriously consider using this product.” Colin McGregor, McGregor Farms, Coldstream, Berwickshire, who farm over 8,000 acres.

Talking......... From the South

Hugo Lee is farm manager at Whitsbury Farm and Stud near Fordingbridge in Hampshire. The soils are predominantly chalk downland with some clay cap. Cropping covers 1500 acres and includes wheat, barley, oilseed rape, peas and poppies. 60 cattle are finished annually and 250 ewe lambs are sold every September. The farm is also home to the famous Whitsbury Manor Stud and Whitsbury racing stables. Winter has returned after a brief spell of spring weather, all field work has firmly ground to a halt. We managed to make the most of a dry spell last month and got all our spring barley and pea ground ploughed. The rape had its first dose of nitrogen and sulphur (26.0.0.27) last week and we are hoping to start spreading Urea on the wheat as soon as the rain stops and the wind dies down. All the crops have come out of the winter well with very little weed or disease pressure to speak of. Our first loads of twenty steers are finally going to ABP Langport tomorrow morning. It will be a relief to see them leave, I just hope they grade well and are not too on the fat side! The sheep continue to do really well on the fodder radish cover crop. They have almost finished grazing off the last field and will First dose of nitrogen going be moved onto our stewardship grass plots, which are located in the middle of the gallops, later this week. on winter wheat The Wilton Hunt met at the farm on Wednesday and the highlight for me was seeing Tilly riding Lobby. It was Tilly’s first ever meet and she loved it, especially the 10 sausage rolls she ate at the meet! I went to an agronomy meeting last week and one of the topics we discussed was the very high chance that glyphosate (roundup) could be banned by Christmas this year. I strongly believe that we must do everything in our powers to stop this from happening. Some of you may hardly use it but if glyphosate gets banned it could lead to almost all other agricultural pesticides being banned in time. Glyphosate is the most frequently used active ingredient in the world and is one of the least Tilly hunting harmful. In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRAC) deemed that, on a hazard basis, glyphosate should be rated as ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’, Group 2A. This category includes things like red meat, frying and also working in the hairdressers! Without glyphosate we would be forced to use more harmful chemicals, there would be an increase in carbon dioxide emissions due to more cultivations and increased soil disturbance. Yields would be suppressed and consumer’s food bills could potentially increase. A return to mechanical weed control would impact on ground nesting birds such as lapwing, partridges and skylark nests destroying eggs and young chicks. Please can I urge you if you have not done so already to write a letter to your local MSP/MP/MEP and stop glyphosate from being banned.

Government Renewable Tariffs Shane McDonald is a Refrigeration Engineer with 20 years’ experience in his field. He is the managing director of Calibrate Inc. Ltd a renewable energy company based out of Chatton, Alnwick. Shane’s role is to advise clients on the best way to make the Government Tariffs work for their farm. Using a Ground Source Heatpump to dry grain is a revolutionary process that reduces running costs, when compared with conventional systems by up to 25%, and qualifies for the highest possible Government Tariff. ‘When installed with an online controller the Heatpump Grain Drying solution has minimal upkeep and maintenance requirements. The online control system means tariff generation can be tracked remotely resulting in a similar level of upkeep to a conventional system’ Shane McDonald The Ground Source Heatpump used to service the Grain Dryer can also be used to heat other applications such as the hot water and radiators in a nearby farmhouse and / or farm cottages. The Heatpump can also be retrofitted with existing heating systems.

What is a Heatpump Grain Drying System? A Heatpump Grain Drying System uses heat naturally occurring in the ground (this is extracted via a series of pipes), the heat is then increased with a 300% efficient Heatpump to the required heating output whilst deriving the 20 year Government Tariff. The normally wasted by-product of the Heatpump’s heating cycle is chilled water, this is used to dehumidify the recirculated air through the grain as well as chilling the grain to anywhere between 10°C to 15°C before it is stored. Heatpump Grain Drying technology is flexible and can be retrofitted with an existing grain dryer or installed as a complete solution. For more information please contact Shane McDonald at Calibrate Energy Engineering via email at: shane@calibrateltd.co.uk or by phone on: 07824 99 6030 or 01668 215 544

Talking......... Arable

Colin Mitchell is farm manager at Meikleour Estate near Blairgowrie in Perthshire. The soils range from light sand and gravel to some heavy, wet, north facing clay loams with 400 acres of fertile silty sand. Cropping covers 2200 acres and includes winter wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape, spring barley and oats, seed and ware potatoes, carrots and vining peas. Conference season is over, bring on the farming! As a committed believer in life long learning/continuing professional development/dotting the Is and crossing the Ts, the Winter period is a good time to refresh old knowledge/skills and learn some new ones. Whether it is sending the sprayer operators on their annual courses, or picking up a few BASIS points while learning about new fungicides, it is all time well spent. Often the best lessons are the ones learnt from fellow farmers, taken in by osmosis rather than when sitting in a conference room. This is where the Monitor Farm concept comes in. For those who don’t know, it’s where a host farmer is selected and is intensively scrutinised for a 3 year period. Open meetings are held during this time which allow any management changes (good and bad) to be highlighted, and they allow farmers to network in a practical environment. Over the last 3 years I have sporadically attended one at Danny and Alison Milne’s Demperston Farm near Auchtermuchty (that’s in Fife for those outside the “Kingdom”.) They have looked at various management “tweaks” which stimulated good discussions at the meetings. The lasting thing that has come out of it (for me anyway) is the Benchmarking group of which I am now part. This encompasses growers from Meikleour to East Lothian, who compare fixed and variable costs through the use of AHDBs’ online benchmarking software. This may sound like a tricky task (and it is), when the businesses range from those with all family labour, cereals and livestock, to the likes of Meikleour where half our area is root crops and all labour is employed. However, it does point out where improvements in performance or reductions in cost should be focused, and how, if we add all these little improvements together, we can make a big difference to the farms financial results. I would go so far as to say that if you have the chance to get involved in a monitor farm management group or be a part of a benchmarking group, I’d highly recommend it. At the very least, it gets you out of your “bubble” and challenges your ideas. Now the Winter season is coming to an end, it is back to work on the land. Over the last few weeks we have started to harvest strawed carrots, which are coming out very nicely with good yields and less damage than usual to the fields. Just this past week, we have also started to get the first dose of nitrogen on the Winter cereals. We could have started in the middle of February, but Loading carrots waited an extra fortnight as the crops aren’t showing any sign of deficiency this is probably due to the drier Winter not washing as much mineralised N out Wheat looking good after of the soil. In addition, we have also finally started on our “Winter” ploughing. potatoes I have traded in our second plough for a new model which can also pull a press. This means that we now have the ability to plough and press a lot of ground in a short time. I know that technically speaking I now have too much capacity (therefore more cost) in my system, but I firmly believe that keeping the land covered over Winter will pay this extra cost back over time, with reduced erosion and nutrient run off. However time, and benchmarking, will tell! Different daffodil varieties 48
